    Sword Rampage at a Church in Germany

    This would not have happenned if more people carried swords with them. I blame this squarely on the lack of sword proliferation in our society. The truth is that swords are extremely safe when operated by trained users. Sword ownership prevents sword attacks.

    No, no! Swords don't kill people, sharpness kills people! If that sword had been blunt those poor victims wouldn't be dead or maimed.

    We need sword sharpening control. Those bastards who make their living sharpening swords should be sued!

        In Indonesia or the US?

        You know, Stalin killed a lot more than 500k commie sympathizers...

              Strange word. I can find a reference to the Philipines (it's in danish, sadly), but I remember vaugely it was used to describe the resisters against the US colonization of the isles.

                  the comparision is specious, swords take quite a bit of skill to wield correctly, firearms to not. further, a 90 pound woman is in no way going to be able to fend off a 300 pound man with any sword.

                    In Indonesia, which is a much smaller country than the USSR was. And they were all executed, not starved.

                      executed vs. Starved - not exactly a ringing endorsement

                        Considering quite a few were executed as well. I don't understand the support for the double standard?

                          Bullsh!t. Perhaps if the man is a trained martial artist and the woman is an anorexic novice the odds would be against her, but assuming that they are approximately evenly skilled, I'll take the skinny girl with the sword of her choice.

                            'Like I do' is non-standard, and would mark you out as a scion of the chav classes, and you're too charming to warrant that happening to you inadvertently.
